About Pyrex Mixing Bowl
When you first started learning how to cook, you suddenly realized why your mom had all those bowls in various sizes — she used them to prepare, serve and store food. Modern Pyrex mixing bowls are plentiful, but the real fun comes when you check out all the vintage designs. Corning Glassware began offering glass baking dishes in 1915 under the name Pyrex, which was an offshoot of the original business of making railroad lantern glass. Pyrex glass was so successful that the company started offering all kinds of glassware for the kitchen, including nested sets of mixing bowls. Modern bowls are more likely to be clear glass, but vintage bowls are often white glass with colored patterns painted on the outside of each bowl. So many of these bowls fortunately survived decades of use in kitchens across the world, and now you can find them from knowledgeable sellers on eBay who have the provenance of the dishes. Your new-to-you Pyrex mixing bowls are more than just a set of bowls you can mix cake batter in. They are also a heritage of American cookware.
